. is not unusual for the democrats, in october 2000 clinton was concerned about getting gore elected and when they almost sunk the naval ship cole, clinton respond happened in no way just as president obama didn't respond with benghazi. americans can die if their political agenda is forward. >> if it is a move to prevent him from revealing what he knows he can be subpeona. >> the congressman said he hoped he didn't have to subpeona him. the administration will try to bury united states in a lot of the irrelevant detail. we watched for seven hours americans being killed and did nothing. you can't get around that information. petraeus was the one in the community who three weeks ago came out with a statement that was clear. no one at any level of the cia stopped the assistance from going to the men under attack. that was close as he could come to say it was the white house. >> and the administration officials are saying the resignation had nothing to do with the libya terror attack investigation upon. but comes as he was set to testify in congress about what he knew. what do you make of the dep
as possible. and the question -- it is so suspicious. comes days after the election and then, you know, days after the election, and then days before he is supposed to testify. now at the very least, shannon, he should absolutely testify this week. there is no reason, no excuse not to have him continue to testify this week. >> congressman -- [overlapping dialogue] >> i agree with the congressman. he should be testifying. i would say it ought to be related to what happened in benghazi. >> do you ever think the timing of how this played out is suspicious? >> of course. it's like a high duh factor. a few days before he's supposed to testify, he's out. obviously, there was control over the timing. he had to leave before he was supposed to go before congress. that doesn't look right, that doesn't smell right. anybody who understands what happens in washington, when a person is pushed out a few days before a hearing, that's the reason for congress to call that person and answer questions about what happened in benghazi and how were four americans killed as a result, what role did the cia play? >>
--61 million on romney's campaign. but we really saw what wall street thought after the election when the stock market had the worst day of the year. you could see that was definitely election related. you saw investment banks get very hard hit because there will probably be a lot more regulation. you saw that utilities went down and hospitals and insurers would benefit from obamacare and managed health companies go down. wall street said we don't like this. we're seeing a lot of lobbyists come out with more conciliatory language. there is hope there can be a compromise. because in the fiscal cliff comes on january 1. >> i think the cbo was saying 9.1% unemployment and it could be catastrophic and drive us into another recession. look if taxes go up on the wealthy and that has been the president's mantra, could that be a long term drag on the stock market? what does it do to people 401-ks? >> it's definitely less incentive to invest in stocks. not so much as rich people but people at the level tend to be small business owners. they are the ones who hire. that is a huge issue because j
: in other news with the election now behind us, thankfully, so many people, washington is getting ready to tackle the fiscal cliff, an economic mandate that could throw the economy into a tail spin unless democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the eco
petraeus, that he resigned after the election and no one knew a thing until this came out? >> no, it's simply not credible. i speak in part not just as a state department alumnus but the justice department too. i can't believe if the f.b.i. investigating the c.i.a., to agencies who have no love loss between them, the f.b.i. uncovered possible problems with communications from the c.i.a.'s director, i have to believe that the director of the f.b.i. would have been informed of this in a matter of nanoseconds and i would be sunday if the f.b.i. director did not immediately talk to the attorney general as soon as he learned about this potential problem. and i then find it hard to believe that the attorney general wouldn't talk to the president. so we don't know exactly what the timing is, but i simply don't think on something this potentially consequential that the information drifted around at low levels for weeks or months. >> it's like the november surprise. they talked about the drone attack that iran fired on a drone on november 1st but that didn't come out. >> that's i think someth
and get a firsthand look at the response there. president obama will make his first post-election visit to the new york city area on thursday. the white house says he will meet with storm victims, local officials, as well as first responders. >> rick: those still struggling after sandy are getting some help from folks who went through a similar situation in new orleans. just today, an amtrak train arriving in newark, new jersey filled with supplies gathered by victims of hurricane katrina. the box car was full of storm relief items, including batteries, diapers, dog food, and will go to residents in hoboken, new jersey, and other hard hit areas nearby. as the relief efforts continue, the will the weather continue? maria molina live with more on that. hi, maria. >> the weather has not really been cooperating a whole lot lately. we had the nor'easter that dumped some snow across portions of the northeast and those areas that were impacted very hard by sandy and very cold temperatures. over the next couple of days, we are going to start to notice a pattern shift with temperatures starting
here and the american people have spoken. even though they elected president obama for four more years they elected the same congress and the congressional approval rating is about at 10%. what both parties need to do is stop the partisan politics and go together and not leave the negotiating table until a deal is done. and working in washington d.c. as long as i have, kelly, it's all about compromise. boehner needs to get his party in line. they do have a divided party in the republican party with the tea partiers, and then, harry reid and presi they need to come together. >> kelly: selena, angela lays it on the line particularly about the republicans dividing themselv themselves because of the tea party. can the prison hope to bri-- the president hope to bring them table. >> it's not the president's responsibility to bring the republicans out there. >> kelly: he almost has to an olive branch? >> he's passed a bill maintaining the tax cuts on those who make under $250,000 and it's on speaker john boehner at this point to simply pass the senate bill and if nothing is done it's on speak
